Les Grands Bois Trio
A twelve bottle mixed case including four bottles each of the wines below:
Côtes du Rhône Viognier 2021
The Rhône's glorious viognier grape is behind my favourite everyday house white wine from Domaine Les Grands Bois, and makes a wonderful alternative to sauvignon blanc or chardonnay. Difficult to grow, it nearly disappeared in the 60's and 70's, but is now extremely fashionable with Condrieu its highest expression. Robert Parker wrote "May be the finest value in Viognier that I have ever tasted".
Côtes du Rhône Cuvée Trois Soeurs 2020
Named after Mireille and Marc Besnardeaus three daughters is a delicious predominantly grenache and syrah wine from 50 year old vines, from the charmingly named village Sainte-Cécile-les-Vignes at the foot of Mount Ventoux.
Rasteau Cuvée Marc 2018
Richer still, this wine is grenache, syrah and mourvèdre, and will age beautifully.
